Now that President Donald Trump has handed Senator Chuck Schumer and his illegal immigrant voting block a pretty humiliating defeat, the current occupier of the Oval Office is rubbing salt into the open wound.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!

The master of the art of the deal is telling all of us on the fruited plain what the deal shall entail regardless of who is trying to broker it on the side of the DemocRATS. If we don’t get our wall, the Dems don’t get any part of their precious DACA. President Trump will let it die.
According to the people in Schumer’s camp, there was a deal on the table after Friday’s immigration meeting that the Senator pulled off. People at the meeting and those with the White House claim that is not exactly true. None the less, without a wall, there is no deal.
Earlier Tuesday evening, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley slammed Schumer during an appearance on Fox News’ “Outnumbered Overtime.”
“He comes over here with a phony plan and a fake promise,” Gidley said, referring to Schumer, D-N.Y.
A Schumer aide confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that the leader withdrew his offer of a boost in funding for the president’s proposed border wall. It was initially made during negotiations over the government spending bill with the president last Friday, the aide said.
Schumer’s office says he pulled the wall offer on Sunday.
But Gidley said they didn’t take the offer seriously, saying the Democrat offered less than one-tenth of what was needed to secure the border in his “bogus negotiation.” The administration wants $18 billion for a border wall.
“You can’t rescind money you never really offered in the first place,” he said.
What this little exercise between two men from the Big Apple is all about is really who is the better street fighter. It’s Queens vs. Brooklyn. At this point, it looks like the man from Queens with first-hand experience of street fighting has the advantage.
The Art of the Deal in real time.
